“Osmayev’s activity in Ukraine was tracked by the Russian Federal Security Service. Intelligence services in Russia also knew that two militants from Caucasus Emirate had come to see him. A fire on Tiraspolskaya was the only evidence that a terrorist attack was being prepared in Odesa. After that, it was decided to put Osmayev on the wanted list and arrest him,” the newspaper quoted a representative of the Prosecutor General’s Office as saying on Monday.

According to the law enforcer, Osmayev’s personal messages and conversations with emissaries from the Caucasus Emirate were found on his computer.

The suspect’s common-law wife, Amina Okuyeva, told the newspaper that if her husband is transferred to Russian law enforcement agencies, it would lead him to his certain death.
